This Sunday many of us celebrate the most supporting and nurturing figure in our lives. Mother’s Day is the day to give thanks and show appreciation to our loving mothers. Every mom is unique and may have different ideas on how to spend their special day. From traditional brunches to mountain adventures, we’ve got you covered for this Sunday.
Brunch is always a go-to for a traditional Mother’s Day celebration, and we can see why! Allowing mom some extra z’s and whipping up her breakfast faves (and avoiding the over-crowded restaurant brunch) is a great way to start the day. Make mom feel extra special by setting the dining table as though you were at her favorite restaurant. Find her favorite flowers for a centerpiece, play music that you’d hear from her favorite brunch spot, use the good china, or even fold cloth napkins in fun ways to show that you appreciate the extra lengths mom always goes for you. For gifts, try jewelry with the kids’ initials, birthstones, keepsake boxes, anything homemade, or family pictures.
These days it seems many of our moms are becoming more hip and more in shape than ever. (After all, where did you inherit your style?) If your mom is the type who looks for new ways to stay age-appropriately trendy and loves to try the latest fitness fads, look for exercise studios that offer gift cards and get mom a gift card for a week trail, Crossfit, yoga, or Zumba–whatever may suit moms fancy. Offer to take a class or two with her for some quality time. Don’t forget to follow the week up with a massage! Gifts for the cutting edge moms can be easy! Look for the latest handbags, newest accessories for any technological gismos, like fun printed iPad cases, or try printing family photographs using artistic filters and placing in a decorative frame.
Living in Colorado, many of moms enjoy a great day spent outdoors in our conveniently close Rocky Mountains. Plan a mountain adventure hiking a new trail, white water rafting, boating, biking, or rappelling. Follow the day up with a late afternoon picnic, complete with a local Colorado wine, or really spoil her with a spa pedicure–after all the time outdoors the indulgence is well deserved! Adventurous moms love anything to do with their outdoor hobbies, a new pair of hiking shoes, new biking helmet, or new camping gear. Take a family picture while outdoors and frame it in a natural bamboo frame.
